Based on extensive research in both American and British archives, 1776 is the story of Americans in the ranks, men of every shape, size, and color, farmers, schoolteachers, shoemakers, no-accounts, and mere boys turned soldiers. And it is the story of the British commander, William Howe, and his highly disciplined redcoats who looked on their rebel foes with contempt and fought with a valor too little known. But it is the American commander-in-chief who stands foremost — Washington, who had never before led an army in battle. The darkest hours of that tumultuous year were as dark as any Americans have known. Especially in our own tumultuous time, 1776 is powerful testimony to how much is owed to a rare few in that brave founding epoch, and what a miracle it was that things turned out as they did.

David McCullough is a superior historian & story teller with the added bonus of reading it himself. He always ferrets out details & not the usual blither most of us heard in school. He's an American treasure in my eyes.

This is a superb book that covers the first year of the American Revolution. It reads like a novel, and the author (David McCullough) does a great job of interpretting his text.
